Esports solutions provider Abios has partnered with gaming data platform GRID to help power its esports odds feeds.
According to a release, the partnership will also see GRID power Abios’ customer-facing brands within the Kambi partner network — Abios’ parent company — with official game data assets for esports betting products.
By having access to official data, which GRID has acquired through various partnerships with game developers and rights holders, Abios’ proprietary odds products will gain higher uptime on live markets as well as greater automation with odds models, the companies said.
Notably, GRID’s game developer partners include the likes of Riot Games, KRAFTON and PGL, among others. As a result, Abios will be able to have access to official data from games such as CS:GO, Dota2 and VALORANT.
The data platform’s partnership with Riot Games in particular saw the joint creation of the VALORANT Data Portal, the official home for all VALORANT in-game data.
Oskar Fröberg, Founder and CEO of Abios, commented on the deal: “Working with official esports data industry leaders is essential to unlocking the full potential of the esports betting market. The real-time data provided by GRID is crucial to be able to build and offer cutting edge products.”
The data solutions are made available to Abios’ partners, which include Czechian sportsbook Tipsport and esports odds comparison platform Buffed.bet. The partnership continues to highlight a period of sustained activity for Abios, with the company recently securing a Swedish permit for its esports solutions.
Mikael Westerling, Chief Sales Officer at GRID, added: “We are looking forward to integrating our official data into the Kambi’s ecosystem and support their offering with the GRID’s data feeds, esports-specialised technology and integrity services.
“The unique value coming from the scale of Kambi’s network, visionary approach, and the Abios’ products capabilities have been continuously impressing us at GRID, and we are committed to ensure their products can thrive powered by GRID data.”
